Keflavík International Airport and Reykjavik’s Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre have followed the example of many major European venues and decked themselves in the black, yellow and red colours of Belgium.

The Belgian capital was struck yesterday morning by two jihadist bomb attacks devastating Brussels International Airport and a busy underground station in the city’s European quarter. 34 are believed to have lost their lives and scores were injured.
